Jacob Scipio will be joining Leslie Grace in HBO Max’s Batgirl film.

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has tapped Jacob Scipio to star opposite Leslie Grace in the upcoming Batgirl film directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Scipio’s breakout performance was in 2020’s Bad Boys For Life, which was also directed by Arbi and Fallah. Scipio’s performance as the villain was heavily praised, so it’s no surprise that the directing duo tapped the rising star to join their DC film.

‘Batgirl’: Story Details For Leslie Grace’s Solo Film Revealed

The news of Jacob Scipio joining the HBO Max film comes after Batgirl made a big splash at DC FanDome, where the character’s suit was revealed via concept art. It’s unclear who Jacob Scipio will play in the Leslie Grace film, though it wouldn’t be surprising if he was brought on board as the film’s big bad given how great he was in the Bad Boys threequel.

The report also confirms that J. K. Simmons will be returning as Commissioner Gordon for the film, an appearance that was originally only rumored at first. Seeing Simmons return as Gordon confirms that the HBO Max film is set in the “Snyderverse”. Simmons was last seen as the iconic police detective in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

The Batgirl movie is set to follow the Barbara Gordon iteration of the Gotham City heroine. Barbara was last seen in a live-action feature film in Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin, with Alicia Silverstone playing the iconic DC Comics character

The next Gotham City-based movie is The Batman, which is shrouded in secrecy. We know that the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding HBO Max’s Batgirl and future of DC Films. Also, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
